Looks like this can't be done.  I just tried this...

sp_dboption master, Single_User, true

doesn't work on master.  How can I restore the master database then?

HI

From a command prompt, enter:
sqlservr.exe -c -m

 
Note  You must switch to the appropriate directory (for the instance of  SQL Server you want to start) in the command window before starting sqlservr.exe.

cheers
